Young Brass Award Final



Clare Teal and Frank Renton present our search for the next brass star.

Clare Teal and Frank Renton present the exciting climax to our search for the next brass star live from Royal Northern College of Music Manchester. Trombonists Ellena Newton and Isobel Daws, Flugel player James Nash and Siobhan Bates on Tenor Horn are all accompanied by the world famous Foden's Band and conductor Michael Fowles as they play to take the Award for 2017.

During the adjudication we hear Foden's in concert including a song by Clare Teal, The Overture to Candide by Leonard Bernstein and Slaughter on 10th Avenue, the rarely heard ballet music from On Your Toes by Richard Rodgers. After a reprise from the winner Foden's end the night with the classic Innuendo by Freddie Mercury.


Four talented young musicians eager to impress the judges play to take the title.

Ken Bruce and Frank Renton present, Foden's band accompany as Sam Dye trombone, Cameron Scott Euphonium, Thomas Nielsen cornet and Ross Dunne tenor horn, play for the 2018 title. Isobel Daws returns to remind us why she was selected as the winner last year. Foden's with conductor Michael Fowles give a concert of their own as judges Helen Vollam, Nicholas Childs and Andrew Crowley decide who will take the award tonight at Royal Northern College of Music.
